      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

MSG Coming to AC34 in SF

Recommended Posts

TheWillpage1cropped.jpg

 

Just received a confirmation that a little bit of MSG is coming to SF next month. Now I just need someone to arrange for the girl to take a ride on a AC45. I guarantee she will not throw the trim out or get in the way. Afterwords, maybe a trip up on the GG for a view and sprinkle in the ebb tide.

 

Anyone?

Another pair of her combat boots are hanging in her favorite ridiculous little pub, The Backstreet Bar, in Beaufort, North Carolina.

 

I'm going to visit them later this month.

Pogen,

Excellent thought! I was thinking of an ebb tide dusting from the GG but an AC45 ride then a PacCup ride, wow!

 

Let's see what we can do.

We tried...not enough time to get her there before the PacCup.

 

Not to get all sappy on all of you, but I don't know if you folks can imagine how much all of this means to me...

 

Message me if you're going somewhere fun and you'd like some of her ashes along for the ride!

 

Love, MSS

Well, cocktail hour last night was wonderful with Catherine in the house. We had a great time, she drank me under the table.:lol:

With the current planning in place, I think she would enjoy a nice babbling brook encounter with the American River at the Gold Discovery Park.

 

We recently had a 4.6 billion year old meteorite come down upon us as well and it is of the rare type that offered life to earth, (CM type carbonaceous chondrite). Fitting for the star dust to meet MSG again in her basic elements and flow to the sea. So she will be in the NorCal sailing arena for a while.

 

Pics to follow.

Beautiful, Rick, just beautiful.

 

Saying thank you does not even begin to cover it.

 

Catherine and I talked about being one with the cosmos a good bit back in February and March while we watched the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter in the night sky.

 

Love, Chris

On my sister Catherine's bucket list, number 16 says "get to San Fran for America's Cup"

 

Thanks to someone amazing, she made it!

Can you tell us more MSS?

 

Someone in California asked me to send him some ashes a few weeks ago. Well, turns out he is an AC45 sailor.. Shortly after I sent the ashes, I was sorting some of Catherine's papers, and came across her bucket list, which she had written in February and March. On it she had written "get to San Fran for the Americas's Cup", so I shared this information in a message once the ashes were on their way to California.

 

On July 20, 2012, at 2:25 PST, a bit of Catherine's ashes were spread from AC45 #4, with the Golden Gate bridge and the San Francisco skyline in the background.

 

When the sailor on board explained what he was going to do to the OR host, the OR photographer was asked to go out in the RIB to get some pics, which are what you see here. I just got these pics last night.

 

I was initially asked to keep things confidential, so I don't want to say who is behind this amazing thing, but if that sailor wants to identify himself here to get some much-deserved credit for performing this act of kind, selfless generosity...well, that is up to him.

 

Let's just say that as the whole thing came together, I was absolutely floored.

Wow. Just wow. Do you think it would be OK to put this on the front page, provided he stays anonymous?

;) if you have the coordinates of that place you can try to have it charted as "MSG's hideout" :)

 

did something similar a couple of years ago, overhere it's not really legal but what the f*ck huh if it's the person's wish ? we dropped the ashes of my brother in law's father right next to a buoy a mile offshore, since that day the note in the logbook does not read "passing Weststroombank buoy" anymore, but "passing Gaston's buoy" B)

Google Earth KML files would work well for this. How can we post one?

Wow that's an incredible story, and very generous of the anonymous benefactor that organized it. It hits close to home too.

My brother Mike

lived in SF and loved to sail. Colon cancer got him at 49. His ashes are also in SF bay.

 

They both have good company for a long sail.

Mattz,

Hope to join him when I pass. My wish is to be in the bay as well.

 

RIP Mike

Hats off to OR for recognizing and accommodating this situation.

 

What we need are the lat/log coordinates of the drop - if anyone can provide them it would be great.

MSS has also sent me a bit of Catherine, and I'll be scattering her ashes on Lake Minnetonka, and also taking her with me to Australia in late September.

 

Catherine told me several times that she wanted to go to the Heaven Can Wait 24 hour race for cancer, so she's coming with me this time. I couldn't possibly be more honored.
